Glittery Wonderland

Today I have a card to show you made up quickly from a ready to print kit, which I think are perfect when you want to make a card but don't have a lot of time, or don't really feel like colouring an image, choosing papers and designing a layout, but just want to get on with the cutting, sticking and embellishing LOL!

Kit - Glittery Wonderland - Paper Creator
Whimsy snowflake die
Organza, metallic edged ribbon and gems - Meiflower
Quickie glue pen and Glamour dust

I laid the metallic edged ribbon over the organza ribbon, then added a piece of ribbon through the knot of my bow before I tightened it.

Hot Stuff!

Meiflower is now stocking some absolutely gorgeous flowers, they are made from satin ribbon, with a diamant√© in the centre and come in a whole range of colours, black, white, cream, pink, blue, lilac, purple, burgundy and red. I have used a few on my card today, although the photo doesn't do them justice. They won't be on the website yet, but if you would like some just email or telephone your order.

Two more from me!

It's either all or nothing with me, no in between LOL! Today I have two more cards to show you.

I thought this image was perfect for all those stroppy, it's all about me! teens we know and love LOL!

Image - Darcy's Diaries_066 - coloured in Photoshop
Papers - Kajolica - Sassy Designs Inc.
Wordart - Attitude 12 - Bethany Hart
Ribbons - Meiflower

Image - TEDDYBEA_234 - coloured in Photoshop
Papers, Frame, Fancy mat - If the Crown Fits - Crazy-4-Monograms
Punched border - EK success Arch scallop border punch
Ribbon, Gems and charm  - Meiflower

I used glamour dust and my quickie glue pen to add glitter to the swirly lines on the frame and stuck little AB gems over the dots. 
The frame is raised with a layer of foam pads, then Bea's feet are glued flat with a little tacky glue, there is a single foam pad under her legs then a double layer under her body and head, and then a small single pad under each of the balloons, where they rest on the frame, so Bea really does look like she is leaning out of the frame.

Angel wings

Today I have a couple of cards to show you using Meiflower's fabulous new Angel Wings, and as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month my first card is in honour of the many women who have fought this particular battle.

I made the letters up in Photoshop, printed them out, cut around them and attached 
them to the card with foam pads.
Papers - Just a Minute - fay-ette designs
Digital stitching - freebies no longer available
Ribbon, gems, angel wings and ribbon of hope charm - Meiflower

My second is a friendship card, I love the sentiment and I thought the angel wings were the perfect embellishment to go with it.

Here is a card I put together after buying the sentiment earlier in the year (because it made me smile) and then coming across the Zombie digital stamp a week or two ago. I thought the axe charm from Meiflower was the perfect finishing touch, and I love the new Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon and just had to use it too.

Here's a card using a charm, gems and glitzy bits(don't know the proper name) from Meiflower. The charm has the word wish engraved on it, and Meiflower also have some others with inspire, create, laugh and love on. They are perfect for a finishing touch to all kinds of cards.
On this card I added a split ring to the wish charm and dangled it from the bottom of the butterfly's wing. I added the gorgeously sparkly glitzy bits either side of the flowers (photo doesn't do them jusice) and used black metallic cord to make the butterfly's antennae, a couple of black gems to the butterflies bodies and a tiny gem in the centres of the flowers were the perfect finishing touches.
